Bai Dinh Temple, along with Phat Diem Cathedral, Hoa Lu Ancient Capital Tam Coc-Bich Dong, Trang An, Cuc Phương is a famous tourist attraction site of Ninh Binh Province.



The New Bai Dinh Temple encompasses an area of 700 hectares, located on Ba Rau hills, near the Hoang Long River. This is a large complex which includes many structures built over several phases starting in 2003 and finally completed in 2010. The temple's architecture follows traditional lines, consisting of large halls, courtyards and enclosures. The huge scale of Bai Dinh makes it strikingly different from previously built Vietnamese Buddhist pagodas, however. The largest structure, the Tam The Hall, rises to 34 m at its roof ridge and measures over 59 m in length.





The construction materials include locally quarried stone and timber from Ninh Binh and tiles from Bat Trang (reinforced concrete was also employed owing to the scale of construction). The temple adheres to traditional Vietnamese design aesthetics with its curve finials and corner eaves soaring outward and upward, resembling a phoenix's tail. Artisanal works from local handicraft villages were selected for the interior, with bronze sculptures from Y Yen, stone carvings from Ninh Van, wood carpentry from Phu Loc, and embroidery from Ninh Hai.
